to carry out the agenda i campaigned on. new security for the middle class. right now our economy is growing and our businesses are creating new jobs. we are poised for a good year. if we make smart decisions in sound investments, and as long as i said on the campaign, one component to growing our economy and broadening opportunity for the middle class is shrinking our deficits in a balanced and responsible way. and for nearly two years now, i've been fighting for such a plan -- one that would reduce our deficits by $4 trillion over the next decade, which would stabilize our debt and our deficit in a sustainable way for the next decade. that would be enough not only to stop the growth of our debt relative to the size of our economy, but it would make it manageable so it doesn't crowd out the investments we need to make in people and education and job training and science and medical research -- all the things that help us grow. now, step by step, we've made progress towards that goal. over the past two years, i've signed into law about $1.4 trillion in spending cuts. two weeks ago
is messing around with the full faith and credit of the united states. it would be bad for the economy when we played that game of russian roulette back in august of 2011. you could see the economy decline. you could see job creation going away. i'm with newt gingrich on this one. newt gingrich had taken a strong position that we should not use, that the republicans should not use the debt ceiling as leverage in this cutting spending. let's use the continuing resolution. let's use the sequester, but don't use the debt ceiling. that's a bad idea. >> president said he won't negotiate on the debt ceiling. >> i think he's right on that. >> senator, thank you. good to see you. >> thank you. nice to see you all. >>> and we spoke to supreme court justice sonia sotomayor. she spoke with scott pelley about her new york city home and reputation as a tough corporate lawyer. >> you write in your book that one day one of the associates one of your colleagues was on the telephone, and he described you, your words, not mine as one tough -- >> his words. >> as one tough bitch. >> yea

"the financial times." china's economic growth has hit its slowest rate in 13 years. still the country's gdp grew by 7.8%. economists say it could have been worse. they note amid concerns of a slowdown, china's government has spurred heavy investment in inf infrastructure. >> "usa today." congress, inexperienced. 40% of lawmakers in the house have fewer than three years' experience. the lowest number since at least 1995. as a result, new members are often receiving committee as
economy and unsustainable over the course of the next several years. >> megyn: one thing we did hear the president reference personally, we heard it from nancy pelosi prior, but the president personally talking about now closing more loopholes and that means higher taxes. we don't know on who, but he would not specify any specific spending reductions and refusing to negotiate with the house republicans on the issue of the debt ceiling. lou, an interesting couple of months. looking forward to it. >> megyn: all right. thank you, sir. >> thanks, megyn. >> megyn: with the president refuse to go negotiate on that debt ceiling, it's coming and we're going to hit it and there's going to be a real question what we will do. he negotiated the last time and suddenly says he doesn't want to negotiate anymore and the republicans have drawn a line in the sand when it comes to these spending cuts, saying, if we don't see a dollar for dollar spending cut in the amount you want to raise the debt ceiling, there's no deal. what kind of progress can we hope for here? our political panel debates that com
economy. the financial well-being of the american people is not leverage to be used. the full faith and credit of the united states of america is not a bargaining chip. >> you know, it looks like republicans are up against another wall. but they're not going to be able to get -- they're not going to be able to get, quite frankly, some things they really want, if they're serious, are important. spending issues. but this is -- he's got them again. >> here's the problem with the republican party being owned by extremists on issues not related to the debt. let me tell you something, the president of the united states, it's laughable that he would talk about republicans not being responsible on debt issues when this president has been in the white house since january the 20th, 2009, and he has yet to do anything significant on social security or medicare. he cut medicare, so he could start a new entitlement program. that's not making medicare more solvent. he hasn't done anything to curb the costs of medical expenses, which he said he was going to do. he did nothing. he struck back room
that we have a uniform rule of economy gent circumstances. that, her suggestion complies with your objection. >> well, if i'm understanding it correctly, i think our point is this, which is that the police officers have to act reasonably in the situation. in the situation they know for sure the evidence is going to be lost, they know that every minute is critical, for example -- >> so many situations in which we require a warrant, nevertheless. when there's drug dealing in a house, every time -- it's almost a certainty that they're going to use the drugs, and that evidence is going to disappear. you rely on knowing that there's likely to be telltale signs left over. and that's the same thing you do in an alcohol situation. you rely on the testimony of the police officer, you rely on the implied consent presumption. it's not as if this is destruction of all evidence. and not like a fleeing situation where someone gets away, you have nothing left. this is vastly different. >> i mean, with respect we disagree. this evidence is critical, and the number matters. i mean, it is the case t
this era of underemployment and structural issues in the economy. >> you think the ipad is the most important new development since the i.b.m. p.c.? >> i do. >> rose: because? >> because it -- i'll start with if you look at the time of day the most common time of day for people to use their ipad is between 6:00 p.m. and when they go to sleep. when what is that known in your line of work? that's known as prime time. and it turns out the ipad isn't the second screen when people are watching t.v. for people over the age of 40, when they're in bed watching t.v. with their ipad, the ipad's actually the thing they're paying attention to and the t.v. is the background noise, if something happens they look up and look at it. why is that important? first of all could you have imagine five years ago that there would be a product that would go from zero to 50 million yunz overnight and the single most common thing to do would be to read in the bed at night? a technology product? that was to me unimaginable five years ago. so i look at this and i wonder what is there anything it cannot do that'
apply the u.s. still driving the u.s. economy. >> this is a big problem. big problem for driving businesses out of the united states. one of the most shocking things i thought was that europe and that office condition is narrowing the gaps to the united states as far as their economic freedom. sweden. another way, germany. this is where a lot of businesses want to go to duck business. they are leaving the united states in many cases. also switzerland only consider three economic freedom country in the world. grease again mostly unfreed according to the raifrngings. the most shocking thing is the united states continues to fall in the rankings. the overall trend however is some good news. there is good news here. economic freedom seems to be increasing. bad news for us at home is a lot of businesses may be taking here. we need them to keep people from being greedy and corrupt and whatnot. >> i think a big part of this study was government spending. in the overall global improvements we have seen in economic freedom is people are cutting back in spending. that's improving overall g
that the global economy will grow by 3% this year. the revised figure is 2% to 4%. officials largely blame the u.s. and europe for the drop. they said political squabbling over the fiscal glif and the upcoming debt ceiling debate pose big risks to the worldwide economy. the ongoing recession in the euro zone also a factor. >>> and winter weather prompts a state of emergency. salt trucks ran all night long to prevent sleet and freezing rain from the roadways and almost a quarter inch of ice formed on power lines and heavy rain is now causing flooding. >>> facebook's new search tool is surrounded by hype, but others think it might be a dude. it's called graph search and it's a way to search through your facebook network for answers. information google cannot access. you could look for restaurants your friends like, kind of like yelp or look for job connections like on linked-in or you can use it to find singles in your area. steven levy is the senior writer for "wired" magazine. steven, welcome. >> thank you. >> okay, you went to the facebook campus, experimenting with graph search. you interviewe

the president accused republicans of trying to collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the u.s. economy. they are demanding more spending cuts before they agree to raise the nation's debt ceiling. the debt ceiling is announcing the amount of money the states can borrow. today the president responded to some republicans who say they are willing to shut down the government if the president doesn't back down. ultimately congress makes decisions about whether or not we spend money and keep the government open. if they decide they want to shut down the government in order to get their way they have the votes in the house of representatives to do that. i think that would be a mistake. >> john boehner responded the american people do not support raising the debt ceiling without reducing government spending statement. wendell, a government shut down, is that something that really might happen? neither side is ready to blink yet. he has laid out they are ready to compromise if possible that could lead to a government shut down although probably not right away. president obama suggested right bef
republicans to hold the economy hostage. he said we could be downgraded by the credit agencies. so what happens if the president holds that position, which there's no reason to believe he won't, and republicans hold theirs, the one you just laid out, what happens to the economy? what happens to the politics of it? >> the vast majority of economists would say that on the economic side, it could be catastrophic. we don't know. if you don't lift the debt limit, we don't know what happens with our creditors, we don't know what happens with the strength of the u.s. economy. we do know that bad things probably happen. we also assume that house republicans at the end of the day will blink on this. i just would not make that assumption. i would look back to that tax vote after christmas. three-quarters of the republican party did not go along with speaker boehner on the compromise on increasing taxes. these guys don't care what leadership has to say about this issue. they want to shrink government. they were elected to shrink government. and whether it's defaulted, whether it's shutting down th
the economy of louisiana expand, and basically progress. >> he's saying if you make louisiana a great place to come, companies will come. >> yes. >> peter: and people will have work? >> yes. >> peter: but the trade-off is, higher sales tax. so the question today is, that a regresssive tax? >> yes. >> peter: as you economists say? >> yes. >> peter: what does that mean? >> everybody pays it. no relation to how much you earn. it's how much you spend. you pay tax according to what you spend. a sales tax, it tax consumption. so in that sense, yes. it is regresssive. but on the other hand, if the absence of income taxes creates a growing economy, everybody wins from that. >> peter: some states don't have income tax. >> there are seven. i'll read them, alaska, florida, nevada, south dakota, texas, washington, and wyoming. on the map. these states have no income taxes at the state level. louisiana wants to become the eighth state and north carolina, may become the ninth state. even oklahoma, they, too, are considering getting rid of personal income taxes at the state level. >> peter: these are in s
in washington. for washington, this is a great injection into the economy. host: this is from one of our viewers -- guest: thought the inauguration funding has not changed very much. the best comparison for this year is 2005, the george w. bush second inauguration, $45 million was raised for his committee. security costs there were comparable. there rose fivefold after 9/11. by 2005 they were in the $100 million range. this inauguration, despite hardships, the numbers are staying fairly concept -- fairly constant. host: our first president was sworn in on april 30 in new york city. it has moved back and forth from the east front to other locations on capitol hill. from harry truman through jimmy carter, it was always on the east front of the capital. moved by the congressional committee to the west front in 1985, which is where it remains today. kansas, independent line, good morning. caller: i think it is amazing that we all want to complain about every penny that is spent in washington, d.c., because of the inauguration. this is something special that happens every four years. surely, surely,

him. president clinton launched his second term at 60%. the economy is still a tough spot for the president and taxes. after releasing a ridiculous ad going after the president's children, the nra is attacking again, this time via a fund-raising email, claiming the president is raising $20 million to jam his anti-gun agenda through congress and accuses the administration of trying to quote reduce your freedom to ashes. i warns of mandatory gun confiscation, and a forced buyback program. it sounds a lot like death panels, and the president is not acting alone. president obama is working alongside his rich gun hating friends in hollywood, and michael bloomberg. they fail to mention he is also the mayor of new york city. we're back after the break. arguments to feel confident in their positions. i want them to have the data and i want them to have the passion. but it's also about telling them, you're put on this planet for something more. i want this show to have an impact beyond just informing. an impact that gets people to take action themselves. as a hum
